Hi Stephen P. King  

Infallibility isn't involved. The typical textbook 
explanation for realism is, "if a tree falls in a 
forest and nobody is there to hear it, would it 
make a sound?" 

A realist (such as me) would say "yes."

Hi Roger, 

     What makes you so sure? Realism assumes infallibility!
